[Catalyst] Testing RESTful web services

I am writing a simple test to test a POST method in a web service but my 
controller does not see any content in the POSTed request.

In the controller both the $c->request->body and 
$c->request->content_length are undefined.

Any ideas?

------ test.t -------
use strict;
use warnings;

use Catalyst::Test 'MyApp';
use HTTP::Request;

my $req = HTTP::Request->new(
        Content_Type => 'text/plain'
    "hello world",

my $response = request($req);
